GAME RECAP

Rookie Zydrunas Ilgauskas had his second straight big game with 23 points and 16 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers were nearly perfect from the free throw line in a 102-84 rout of the Phoenix Suns.

One night after collecting 26 points and 17 rebounds in a loss at Utah, Ilgauskas shot 10-of-14 from the floor, 3-of-3 from the line and helped the Cavaliers to a 48-34 rebounding advantage.

Former Sun Wesley Person and rookie Cedric Henderson scored 17 points apiece for Cleveland, which was 27-of-28 from the line. The Cavaliers made just four baskets in the final period, but sank 16-of-17 foul shots to snap a season-high three-game losing streak.

"Obviously a very big win for us to come back from the loss last night," Cleveland coach Mike Fratello said. "We know how they can score points in this building, and each time they made their run it was good to see our guys hold our ground, maintain their composure and execute the way we wanted to execute."

Rex Chapman had 22 points and Steve Nash added 15 for the Suns, who shot a season-low 34.5 percent and were held below 20 points in three quarters.

Cleveland brought a 77-65 lead into the fourth quarter before Phoenix opened the period with six straight points to close within 77-71 on a layup by Jason Kidd with 10:41 remaining. But Vitaly Potapenko and Ilgauskas each sank a pair of free throws before Person drilled a three-pointer for an 84-71 lead with 8:44 to go.

The Suns answered with an 8-2 burst, with George McCloud contributing a three-pointer and a three-point play, trimming the deficit to 86-79 with 5:50 left. But the Cavs put the game away by scoring the next 10 points. Rookie Derek Anderson was 6-of-6 from the stripe and Person converted a three-point play before rookie Brevin Knight made the first of two free throws for a 96-79 bulge.

"We got smashed," Kidd said. "Every time we were within two or three we kept missing that one shot, and they came out and played well."

Knight's miss on the second free throw snapped Cleveland's streak of 22 straight to open the game.

The Cavs raced to a 27-18 lead after one quarter, with the combination of Ilgauskas and Knight nearly matching the entire Suns team by combining for 17 points, led by nine from Ilgauskas.

The second quarter was Phoenix's best, as the Suns scored scoring 28 points, 11 by Chapman, to close within 49-46 at halftime.

A dunk by Antonio McDyess opened the third quarter to bring the Suns within one point. But Person victimized his former team for six points in a 12-3 burst as the Cavs opened a 61-51 cushion on a bucket by Ilgauskas with 6:43 left in the period.

"I didn't do anything in the first half to help the team," Person said. "I made it a point in the second half to be more aggressive. In the beginning they did a good job of switching out on me. They didn't want me to get going early because they know what kind of player I was."

Knight had 15 points and eight assists and Anderson finished with 14 points for Cleveland, which shot 50 percent (37-of-74) from the field. Anderson led the charge from the line, going 8-for-8.

Shawn Kemp contributed 12 points, nine rebounds and six assists for the Cavs, who defeated Phoenix for the fifth time in the last six meetings and improved to 10-3 against Western Conference teams.

Kidd had 13 points and 10 rebounds and McCloud chipped in with 10 points for the Suns, who were just 30-of-87 and have dropped consecutive games.
